During capture, try looking at the RGB histogram and in particular the red channel. You'll have to underexpose a bit to minimize or eradicate clipping in the red channel. Two other tips, make your own raw custom camera profile using something like X-Rite Passport and the other is to reduce the luminance of red in your raw processor. In Adobe CR in the color adjustments there are adjustments with sliders for hue, saturation and luminance for all colors or use targeted adj tool that's also there too.
