Try a little sanding with 150 in the area and re-stain. I would mix up some dye with some finish and try to cover, then cover it spraying a toner coat, but I’m guessing those aren’t options for you. Either it wasn’t dry or it’s glue contamination. There’s no reason to wipe down with water “to open the grain”. If you want more pigment trapped, sand with a lower grit. FYI, you don’t have to go nuts with getting all sanding dust off with a tack cloth. You’re going to wipe the stain off, and the dust will wipe into the grain and off the surface. I just vacuum the surface or use a microfiber towel and go. You may want to look into using dyes.
