There is of course the possibility that Jesus, rather than creating the wine, simply transported it from somewhere else (and of course transported the water elsewhere)

Bob's response:
I can appreciate why the Word made flesh might have aged the wine rather
quickly, assuming "the best wine" tasted aged. One could say that he was

giving a special gift to the wedding party, or giving a foretaste of the
messianic banquet, or simply to "show forth his glory," the specific purpose
that Scripture seems to indicate. But what possible purpose could the Word

"in the beginning" have in creating an entire universe that gives every
indication of being billions of years old, but doing it in six days? What
purpose would this serve? What kind of sign (semeia) is this? Can anyone

give me an answer that does not require me to take leave of my senses?

Here's another difference in the YEC apparent age argument and the apparent age of the wine. By creating the wine miraculously in front of all the guests, he made its true age clear. Not so in the creation of the universe.
