I do not know exactly what could have happened to your plant, but I am
very certain that the age of the seed has nothing to do with it.
Seeds can take storage in room-temperature a long time, and since it germinated there is no reason to believe the time has affected it.

The explanation is probably a more common one. Pathogen, to little water or to little nutrients are possible causes. 

Sorry that I can not help you more than saying that the seed has nothing to do with it.

Best regards,
