Did it have a lot of headspace, or a not-tight bung? I aged a wine one time in a carboy with a "carboy cap" instead of a bung, and the wine oxidized. The carboy cap must have fit loose around the neck.
The wine needs to be topped up to within an inch or two of the bung in order for oxidation risks to be minimized.
