hi sir,
Yes, Age is not a barrier at all.However ED does occur due to diffuse changes in the vascularity of the penis...Like the reason for your hypertension.So even the medications may not be sufficient
However there are newer drugs and other methods to achieve good erection both medical and surgical
Do consult a urologist for more details.
all the best
