Generally a DWI would be unlikely to be charged under these circumstances unless the officer believed that you had drugs in your system in additional to alcohol.
If you were charged with Driving After Consuming Less than 21, this is a more serious charge than a simple underage drinking charge. It carries many of the same court and license consequences that a DWI charge carries.
While it appears to be good news that you were not charged with DWI, you should be very careful as to how you approach the underage drinking charge(s) so that you can do everything possible to keep your record clean.See question

There are a number of issues going on with your case. It would be important to determine why the officer initially responded to your vehicle. The fact that no standardized field sobriety tests were performed is also very interesting under the circumstances. Our typical process for handling a DWI in Gaston County is to try and get officer notes back as quickly as possible so that we can determine what issues are ripe for attack on a case.See question
