Help me identify this finish?

Not necessarily specific to mcm but with all of the handy people on here I was wondering if you could help me identify the finish on these block walls. Is it stucco? It looks smoother than that but am not sure what it would be. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

To buy or replicate, specify "Santa Barbara stucco"
And here's an important part: block walls (CMU to a pro) need to be "scratch coated" first. The instances you see where the pattern of the block shows through did not get this step.
