Maybe offing topic, but you may try:
Clients --> Varnish (for caching) --> HAProxy (L7 LB/Proxy) --> Nginx WebSrvs

Good enough. But HAProxy gives you more power on LB and Proxying.

Consider to use shared session storage with Memcached.

There are lots of features I just can't tell in details regarding
Varnish, HAProxy. I think they'll give you much more choices.

Hope that helps.
