Aperture & Color Adjustment

The following is specific to 5D Mark III images, this does not happen on RAW images from other cameras:

I shoot mostly in RAW (the camera is set to "Faithful"), and this is what happens:

1/ I upload the image into Aperture
2/ Previews (thumbnails display normal colors)
3/ I click on an image, display a screen size
4/ Little sign on top of the image tells me "loading original"

5/ When loading is finished, the image is adjusted for what looks like contrast, and especially the reds pop out unnaturally - pink becomes bright magenta
6/ The reds don't go to their natural red or pink state

It seems that Aperture is picking up a profile from somewhere, or does something to the image while generating a preview.

Do you know where the setting is, and how I can turn this down?
