You have to watch what color space you are using, and what your printer can handle. Photoshop has a Gamut Warning that will tell you when a color is blown for the color space being used.

If you are using ProPhoto RGB, or Adobe RGB, and your printer can only handle sRGB, you are likely to process colors beyond what your printer can render.

Lightroom 4.4 and ACR use camera profiles for rendering color for different cameras. If you wish, you can open one of the Adobe camera profiles in the free Adobe DNG Profile Editor and make adjustments for reds. Then save it as a new profile and apply that to your files.

With digital RAW, the color is up to you.
