Default aging to reduce oak?

I have a wine that I think I may have over oaked. It just tastes a bit too woody at this point in time. Will bulk aging reduce the harshness of the oak tannin or am I stuck?

Thanks!

Oh, yes, aging will definitely mellow the tannins and smooth it out nicely. Depending on how much you overdid, it might take 6 months to several years, though! Normally, about 6-12 months is plenty for a moderate amount of overoaking.

awesome thanks! Based on what I know about aging I figured this was the case, but I always like to double check!
