Can't say I have consistent issues with the D800 in this respect but there could be a lot of reasons for that. For times that I have color issues that are not (easily) correctible via WB adjustments in RAW processing, I use the awesome curves tool in Aperture. I find Aperture to have the most straightforward approach in this respect because you can stack many curves tools and have a separate one for just pulling down the highlights in the Red channel for instance.

This guy has an awesome four-part series on the Aperture curves feature:

I'm sure much of it is applicable to other software, even if they're curves tools are not quite as elegant.
