It looks like you're trying to mix different levels.
Labels are usually defined on RDF-Schema level, where you define classes, properties, their relationships and their metadata (including human-readable labels).

JSON-LD @context is not an alternative to this. It just helps to convert shorter json-document into valid RDF.

@context is an instruction to processor, which tells that "name" is actually a http://schema.org/name but it doesn't tell what it means.
Meaning is encoded in RDF-schema
