PS: I'm just taking a stab... is this Chroma Noise?

Yes! The really raw RAW will typically have plenty of chroma noise and some but less luminance noise (salt & pepper graininess). Higher ISOs will make it worse. Your typical RAW converter will have a default Chroma noise reduction to minimise this without adversely affecting the image, and you can tweak this setting to suit each image if desired. Take a look at RawTherapee (freeware) or DXO, LightRoom etc RAW processors. And some are happy to just use JPG! I tweaked my JPGs for a long time, but there really is more quality waiting to be coaxed out of RAW.
