John,
Yes, you can embed a dimension name into your annotation (i.e. - D2@Sketch1@Part1-1@Drawing View1 or "RD1@Drawing View1").
This works with both driven (reference) and driving (inserted from model) dimensions.
Hope this helps.

alternatively, a somewhat easier method...doesn't require you to know the dimension name:
1)make sure the relevant dim is visible in your drawing 2)start your note, and then click on the dim that you want included in the note 3) finish the note 4) if desired, right click on the dim and select "hide". Don't delete the dim from the drawing or you'll loose the linked portion of your note
note: symbols like R or diameter will not appear in the note unless you manually add them. Also, tolerances don't seem work with this method.
