A barley wine if made now would be smooth next winter, and the winter after if any was left. If you really want something ready for this winter I would consider something more in the 1.060-1.070 OG range. A robust porter or strong old english ale come to mind.

I think a 1.090 barley wine (American) can be great in 6 months.
