DSC-R1 and Adobe RGB

Today I took a few photographs of backlit red poppies. Just happened to be in Adobe RGB mode (don't know yet whether other color modes would be different here). Here is the resulting JPEG:

Quite colorful. The problem is that I now tried developing from raw, and unless I add exposure compensation and tell Rawtherapee not to clip gamut and a few other somewhat dubious settings, I arrive at something like

which is decidedly less dramatic but (as I don't have photographic memory) slightly more plausible. Color me puzzled for now.
