Indeed, one might expect a more vivid color from this mushroom; however, MushroomExpert.com states that the color varies from “cinnabar red to orange or rusty cinnamon”. Do you think it is a stretch to “rusty cinnamon”?

C. cinnabarina has an orangish red color. This looks brownish from the photos.
