Good question, Jack... China has been using grapes to make wine for over 4,500 years. It is reported that within the next 20 years, the Chinese market for wine will be the largest in the world. As far as the drinkability of the wine that you purchased, that is a complicated issue. As most Asian reds will mature in 2-5 years, yours should be at it's peak. The only drawbacks are what type of cork seals the bottle and if it has provided a solid seal. You also have to factor in if the bottle has been standing upright since it was bottled. And what type of temperature and humidity was the bottle subjected to prior to your purchase?
