Penetrating Stain doesn't: on Pine?

We're stripping paint and restaining the interior window sills
on our 1911 Craftsman. Odd thing. After getting down to the bare wood (using SoyGel, great stuff) then cleaning w/ denatured alcohol we applied Minwax Penetrating stain. It dries, we wipe. It comes right off. Not a shred of color in the wood. Any ideas? Anyone? Please?

Lightly sand before you apply the stain.
