Red? Bordeaux? Grey?

This story, once again started with a picture in a german knitting magazine...
As we all know despite of three years of german classes in highschool, my german is not sufficent enough to read through and make sense of a written pattern.
On the other hand my knittings skills are good enough to make up something from my head that looks pretty much like the one on the picture. Except for some extra cabling I added to the back.
Extra luck, that after much searching I bumped into a yarn that is remarkably similar to teh original one in a Mueller store.
Mostly alpacca, used 12 balls (600 gramms) to the last meter.
