Using CieLab Coordinates for Color production of wine

I realize this may be a somewhat specialized and obscure use of Photoshop but I am a Wine Chemist and have been collecting color spectral data from my experimental wines and would like translate the spectra into a color for a presentation.

I have all of the data from my wines including L*, C*, H*, a*, and b*. When I create a new lab color document and try to imput my color coordinates Photoshop CS4 has some different options than what I measure. For example the saturation or c* is listed for some reason as a percentage and if I type in a Hue value (which I have to subtract from 360) it automatically recalculates my L*, a* and b* values. Can anyone help?
