I wanted to set the value of label in WPF to the value that System.Deployment.Application.ApplicationDeployment.CurrentDeployment.CurrentVersion would give you?

How would I do that in XAML?

I would suggest using the MVVM pattern for a piece of data like that.  

In the following example I'm creating a new class to facilitate a DataContext; if you have an existing object you're using as DataContext already, you can add a Version property to that (instead of creating an entirely separate class just to house the Version).  But this just illustrates the concept:

public class MyViewModel
{
	public Version MyCurrentVersion 
	{ 
		get { return System.Deployment.Application.ApplicationDeployment.CurrentDeployment.CurrentVersion; }
	}
}

(then, in XAML)

<Grid>
	<Grid.DataContext>
		<local:MyViewModel/>
	</Grid.DataContext>
	<TextBlock Text={Binding MyCurrentVersion} />
</Grid>
